"Guests" is too polite a term.

My baby sis just sent that to me. Insane! Although, I have to question whether the grandmother actually harmed the cast member by patting her on the costume head. Caused neck strain? I need a little more explanation there.

And how embarrassing is it that the guy banned from Disney for groping was a DVC member???

Where was the handler in these events? Why are the CM’s not pressing charges? Soon there will be a rule that on children can hug a character thanks to people like this.

Those heads they wear are pretty heavy. The article I read on the BBC site said she hit him on the head several times to show her grandson that the character wouldn’t hurt her. I can imagine that meant five or six hits, not gentle taps. If I do that to myself, my neck and shoulders definitely feel it.

The result will be wdw protects the characters more and allows less character interaction . That will be a shame .

I went back and re-read it, and that’s what I’m getting from the article too.
